Q: Why do I have to move my site? What does website migration entail?
A: The website migration service that we are offering is free of cost (to a certain extent). We’ll move your site(s) to our high–end cloud hosting platform without you having to do anything. We know from experience that switching hosting providers can result in lost data and undesirable network downtime. That is why we will do all that for you at no cost!We’ve got highly trained administrators whose main responsibility is to make certain that your site performs exactly as it did on your previous web hosting platform. The administrators are well–versed in migrating custom–built websites, as well as websites that are based upon well–known web applications like Joomla™ and WordPress.
Q: Web site migration seems like a lot of work. How much time does it take?
A: While we cannot give you a precise time window, since there are a lot of variables, among them the physical size of the web files and databases, the physical location of the present host’s server, the complexity of your website and the present workload of our Website Migration Department, etc., we’ll give our best to move your website within 48h, and in some cases – within 24h (if the website content is not very large).
Q: What details will I need to provide to your Website Migration Department?
A: We will require the login information for your old web hosting provider’s Control Panel along with the website’s name (domain name).
Q: My present web hosting account has sensitive info inside. How can I rely on you?
Q: Will there be any downtime for my web site?
A: Your site will continue to work exactly like it did before with your previous web hosting provider. As soon as we are through with the transfer, your web site will be configured to work on our platform and we’ll ask you to preview it. If it is functioning correctly, all you will have to do is modify the NS resource records for your domain. Your website will be migrated over to us without any downtime whatsoever.
Q: Will my old web hosting provider need to provide any information/assistance?
A: Nope. We will never touch base with your hosting provider about anything at all. They won’t be aware of the web site migration either.
Q: Which web hosting providers can you migrate content from?
A: We support all Linux–powered hosting platforms. In essence, if we can obtain access to your Control Panel, we’ll be able to migrate your web site.The only platforms that we don’t support are closed–source site creation platforms like Wix, BaseKit, Jimdo, Website Tonight, Four Square, Mr Site, etc.
